July 7, 1871

The Plattsburgh Sentinel - Friday, July 7, 1871

The Fourth at Rouses Point
Two smart games of base ball were played in the afternoon.

The Fourth at Schuyler Falls.
An interesting time was had at Schuyler Falls. With public spirited and wide awake men like J. T. Everest, F. Good, C. Turner and others, to "put it through" it could not be other than a success.
In the forenoon there was a game of base ball between the "Star" and the "Pawnee" companies of that town. After a closely contested game of two hours the Stars were victorious, by a count of 18 to 20. S. S. Taylor, Umpire.
